Some of the proceeds from these events will go toward conservation efforts for the Colorado River Headwaters.

This regatta is staged on Grand Lake (once known as Spirit Lake) at an elevation of 8,437 feet. Grand Lake, located in north-central Colorado, is a friendly, historic mountain town near Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake is the highest, largest natural lake in Colorado at the base of majestic Mt. Baldy.

There will be a staggered start exhibition Head Race first. The Teams will be timed over the course and results will be posted (after all teams have completed the race) in the Infinite West booth in Town Park. There will be awards for the fastest times in each category. Get Registered!
Entry fee for the Head Race is $25 per person. After Aug.25, entry fee is $30 per person.

Kayaks & Paddle Boards:
Kayaks and Paddle Boards will start immediately after the rowing regatta. The race course will be an out-and back course to a single buoy. The course will be shorter than that of the crew race – this is an ‘Exhibition’ paddle board race with a mile-long course +/-
Following the race at 1:00pm enjoy the Grand Lake Brew Fest and Colorado Beers! All racers will receive $10 off of the $25 event fee.

Earth Day is BACK!

After a successful first year, Granby has once again decided to host an Earth Day celebration. The date for this year’s event will be May 21 in Granby’s own Polhamus Park. This year, in partnership with Teresa Hill and Slopeside Productions, Infinite West is honored to be taking a more active role in getting this event off the ground. Visit the Slopeside Productions webpage to get a glimpse of the 2011 event. Stay tuned for more information, including the history of Earth Day and opportunities for businesses or families to get involved! We are currently looking for sponsors, vendors, volunteers and educators. Please contact Jessie W if you are interested in participating at any level.

Recycling on Saturdays at Granby’s Country Ace Hardware

Infinite West has joined with the Grand Resource and Recycle Coalition (the GRRC) to staff the recycling bins provided by Valley Recycling at the Granby Country ACE Hardware on Saturdays from 9am-1pm. Our groups have been taking turns staffing the bins to assist in recycling efforts and to get the message out to residents that, “yes, there is recycling in Grand County.”

It has been great getting to know the people who are so concerned about Grand County’s recycling situation. We are grateful to those who have joined our efforts by becoming members (family, individual, and business) as well as those who have stepped forward to become sponsors.

Our Infinite West board members as well as several volunteers have been advising recyclers about what is acceptable to recycle, and how to prepare recyclables that are brought to this drop off location.

We’re always looking for more volunteers to help! If you have questions about what or how to recycle, or would like to volunteer for this or other of our efforts email us or come by on a Saturday. We’re happy to help.

February 2011     Check us out!
